A tire I ordered awhile back from another Mini bike parts vendor, which is only about 4 inches shorter than the tires in question,, was only around 12 bucks for shipping.
It actually came in a nice box also, & wasn't all jacked up from being banded & squished ect.
Fired up the GX this morning, & ran it for around 15min.
Run's great, & no smoke !! :)
Am going to try & get it mounted in the next couple of days,, & order most the goodies from NR racing, probably by
late next week.
If you can find copper sheet that's about 1/2 as thick as a normal exhaust gasket, you can punch them out of that & double them up.
Some exhaust manifold to head pipe gaskets on misc. 4 cyl cars, a lot of times will have enough area on them also,, to punch out gaskets for small engines.
Got the gears pressed & swapped today, & have the PW 50 gears set & ready to go on my buddies QT- 50
Definitely have to be very precise & easy with pressing the ring gears off & on the shafts, with using constant propane torch heat on the ring gears.
They didn't send a new wristpin / rod -...
I know guys who used to race T/F Harley drag bikes , that got their ribs broken ect. during a run,, because they ride it basically laying over the top frame, & then something in the engine letting go ....
Work part time mornings in a home improvement store, in the outdoor power equipt. dept., & a guy returned a pretty much brand new Simpson ''pro'' 3700psi pressure washer, with a GX -200 on it.
The dumb @$$ didn't add any extra oil, & the engine would quit running, because of the oil level sensor...
Just acquired a new - '' barely run'' GX- 200, that pretty much landed at my feet. :p
Am starting a new thread with swapping that on ect. ;)
Might be letting go of the modded 80cc engine, jackshaft set up,,& pipe.
Send me a PM if interested in that stuff.
